Odran Edward

You may feel a feeling of familiarity in Toronto based painter Odran Edward’s work. Odran is inspired by the classical spiritual sculptures, and explores them by creating psychedelic-impressionist paintings of them.

Marie Koetje

Berkeley Pit

Portland, Oregan based Marie Koetje’s dark paintings are chaos interrupted. Her subject matter usually deals with natural/ man-made environments out of control. Incredibly noisy with vegetation, trash, and color that are all suddenly silenced by one striking color of fluorescent lighting, neon signs, etc.

We are enjoying some of New York based artist Austin Power’s recent work. His focus on the human expression, and his interest in wanting to fully understand another human being has us interact with his work by filling us up with empathy.

Rachael Weitzman’s
work would brighten up anyone’s home and add life to any art gallery. Her paintings are more like narratives, there is a story line behind it all. For example, in her “Helter Skelter” group of paintings, (not pictured), each piece holds in stasis an unfolding event. Often, the different speeds of the brush–slow, careful pointillism, or sweeping gestural marks– vie with each other and echo the struggle for containment within the painting.

Ian Larson’s works are incredibly congested with raw, dirty, crude energy. I almost feel too shy to really observe his paintings. The way Ian paints so thickly onto his canvas, almost has these exposed, and humping characters pop out of their environments in an attempt to keep you from looking away. Definitely attention grabbing.
